I think you are on the right track. I would tell them what you are putting it towards.  Like “Thank you for the gift card it will go towards the purchase of a new washer and dryer.”  That should be enough.

For gift cards, I think listing something like your china would be perfect since you more than likely won’t receive every single piece of your china. For cash, we usually did something along the lines of, “Thank you so much for your very generous gift. It will come in very useful as we (save for a house or insert what you’re saving for there or don’t say you’re saving for anything) begin our new life together.”

I second the “generous gift” line. Never write the exact amount in a thank you note! Whether it’s $20 or $2000, it’s a “generous/thoughtful/wonderful gift”

I would never write in the monetary amount, it’s just weird and also tacky. Going with the generic “Thank you so much for the generous/thoughtful/awesome/kickass gift” works just fine.

When we had our engagement party, we got cash and gift cards and most of my thanks you when like this.

“Thank you so much for the generous gift. We’re so glad that you were able to celebrate our engagement with us. We plan to use the gift as we furnish our new home together. We hope to have everyone over soon. Thank you again.” (we had just bought our house so that line fit, but you can substiute whatever works for you)

As long as no one lives in the same house, just pick a basic “script” and keep to it. It’ll make things so much easier. Just keep a list of who sent what and if you sent a thank you card so that no one can question you.
